This week hubby noticed something strange on some of the corn plants. The kernels looked gray and hugely deformed. We had no idea what this was and hadn’t seen it before. We were growing a heirloom type called Golden Bantam. After posting this short vid on YouTube many shared with us its called Corn Smut. And in Mexico and other southern areas people actually eat it. Ok I think I’ll pass! LOL
This has been a very wet and humid year for us. That’s led to more mold problems then normal.
